Virtual Academy Handbook

Decatur County Community Schools is dedicated to our vision of Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow. In order to reach our vision, the district will ensure that all students receive a robust and rigorous education regardless if it is in-person or virtual. In order to accommodate families that would like a completely virtual option, DCCS has created the C² Virtual Academy for students. This option is available for all students to allow families the flexibility that they need during this time.

Students enrolled within C² Virtual Academy are able to participate in a variety of school activities with students who are not virtual such as clubs, athletics, and prom. Please note that the district will follow all guidance from the Indiana High School Athletic Association for participation in athletics. For more information, please view our C² Virtual Academy Student and Family Handbook.
